Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
Ok, I like the Top of the Pops-ish, Debbie Harry kind of stuff but I'm really struggling with people wanting to look like the cast of Sons and Daughters or Jan Leeming. The Sloane Ranger look is surely just around the corner? Am I just the wrong age group (34) or am I just square? I can't be the only Mumsnetter who shudders at the thought of wearing a 'blouse.' Can I just bypass fashion til it's over? Tune back in about 2010 maybe?
I'm all for an 80s revival so long as it's the cool stuff (not that much of it was cool but you know what I mean). I didn't do the "blouse"/Jan Leeming thing in the 80s and I'm certainly not doing it now. I am 45 though so I'm a bit long in the tooth for all that anyway
I wore it first time round but have the maxim that if you wore soemthing first time round, you are too old for any reincarnations. My pet hate being pussy bows. Think Thatcher and who needs to reincarnate anyting to do with her.
